GGL Diamond Corp.: Non-Brokered Private Placement To Raise Up to $2,000,000

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) -


Raymond A. Hrkac, President and CEO of GGL Diamond Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GGL) ("GGL"), announces that GGL intends to raise up to a total of $2,000,000 by way of a non-brokered private placement consisting of a combination of flow-through common shares at a price of $0.25 per flow-through share and non-flow-through units at a price of $0.20 per non-flow-through unit. The flow-through shares portion of the private placement is subject to a maximum aggregate of $1,500,000 and subscribers participating in the flow-through shares portion will be required to allocate at least 10% of their subscription proceeds to purchase non-flow-through units. Each non-flow-through unit will consist of one non-flow-through common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share for two years from the closing date of the private placement at $0.30 per share in the first year and $0.40 per share in the second year. Insiders will be participating in this private placement. GGL will pay an 8% finder's fee to eligible finders, payable in shares for the flow-through shares portion and in shares or cash for the non-flow-through portion of the private placement.

The funds will be used to expand the drill program for nickel and for exploration at GGL's 100%-owned PGB claims in the Northwest Territories, and for general corporate purposes. The subscription proceeds allocated to the flow-through shares will be incurred as Canadian exploration expense, as defined in the Income Tax Act of Canada, and GGL will renounce such proceeds to the subscribers effective for the 2008 tax year. The private placement is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange and is expected to close no later than July 31, 2008.
